Joanna added:

"I consider it will be a Conservation in Action event, also a Show & Tell in a working conservation studio.

I will be an Ambassador for Conservation and I hope to introduce more people to the work I do.

I have had a lot of interest and bookings already but still have spaces on tours starting on the hour between 10am – 7pm. The groups have to be small due to space restrictions & everyone must book in advance. I am looking forward to it!"

"My studio is situated in a 19th century original Bedford Park artist’s studio, built c. 1880. It was probably built as an outside studio for the Bedford Park Art School, destroyed during the 2nd World War.

The studio is in a group of 4. The studios have their original large North facing windows. It is now a well planned conservation studio which I designed over 20 years ago, after living in Japan for 5 years."
